Wow.
It would also explain in part why his prices are insanely high.

S&W buys directly from Walther in large quantities I am sure.

Earls buys from a wholesaler (with their markup added) who buy directly from Walther.

If he is buying from European distributors, then he is dealing with a dollar to euro exchange rate that is terrible at the moment. So not just a quantity issue but also a value of the US dollar abroad issue. The dollar has been way down against the euro for a long time.
